Samsung prepare to start an R&D lab in Espoo, Finland!

   Nokia were once the giants of the mobile market and they were once the biggest mobile phone manufacturer in both popularity and in sales. As a result Nokia used to have tonnes of employees and lots and lots of very intelligent people working at their company. In recent times though people have had to save money in Finland and the dwindling sales have taken their effect on the company.

   That's not gone unnoticed by other people in the mobile phone market and as such Samsung have decided to seize the opportunity and are looking to make the most of the people in Finland who're currently without jobs and that's why Samsung have announced that they're going to be opening an R&D lab in Espoo, Finland which is the exact same place where Nokia have had their HQ for years.

   Samsung's lab will open on the 13th of June and AndroidBeat's Stephan Constantine was one of the lucky few who got an invite to the launch event and here's what his invite said:
"I am delighted to inform you that Samsung Electronics, a global leader in mobile communication, digital media and convergence technologies, will open a Research & Development facility with a focus on advanced technologies.
Samsung Electronics’ vision is to “Inspire the World, Create the Future.” We are dedicated to developing innovative technologies and efficient processes that create new markets and enrich people’s lives and communities around the world.

In anticipation of future partnership, friendship and collaboration please join us to celebrate the opening of our newest global R&D facility.
Sincerely yours,
Dr. Yong-Suk Moon

   We're not sure what 'advanced technologies' Samsung plan to work on, but no doubt they'll be able to utilise some of Espoo's finest!
